Lingard Launches United Closer to the Top Four in the Premier League

Lingard Launches United Closer to the Top Four in the Premier League

Manchester United managed to shake off fatigue concerns to overcome a stubborn Middlesbrough in Riverside on Sunday, which saw them ascend the Premier League table for the first time since game-week 11. Mourinho fielded a back three again - for the third consecutive game this season, not to mention against a team that has massively struggled to score goals, his decision was slightly perplexing. The visitors looked a hastily assembled side at least on paper, clearly a consequence of injuries …

Fellaini, Romero and the Romance of the Europa League

Manchester United are through to the last eight of another European competition. The Red Devils, despite all the 'obstacles' came away with a 1-0 victory which will be remembered for a long time for reasons plenty, with the result itself not being one of them. United went into the game with a bit of suspicion in their minds planted by a rather dangerously slender advantage via the away goal they had scored in Russia. Mourinho started the game with a …

Seven Game-Changers Who Could Make A Difference In The Final Stretch - Part 1

The Premier League is drawing to a close - and although this season has, much to the dismay of the neutrals, been less about the drama and uncertainty at the very top end of the table unlike last campaign, it has had its clutch moments of its own as the ensemble of superstar managers have all made a mark - some indelible, while others not so much, at various stages in the last seven months. As the final international break …

Stoke City v Chelsea Preview | Team News, Stats & Key Men

League leaders Chelsea travel to face Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium as the Premier League is preparing for a mini-hiatus, what with the final international break of this campaign. Stoke City sit ninth in the league with 36 points on board, four shy of eighth placed West Bromwich Albion.

Holders Crash Out as Mourinho Prepares for the Run In

Holders Crash Out as Mourinho Prepares for the Run In

It was very predictable in the end. Manchester United clinging on to avoid embarrassment at Stamford Bridge staring at the prospect of only their third defeat since late October - a result that would deny them a fifth trip to Wembley in under a year. United fielded a back three for the second game in row - probably just the second time in Mourinho's managerial career stretching roughly across 800 odd games in all competitions. With Rashford and Mkhitaryan playing …

Chelsea v Manchester United: FA Cup 6th Round Preview

When Manchester United travel to West London to play Chelsea, it is usually exciting. The two sides have played some fascinating games leading to significant results in the last two decades and Monday's encounter could just be another of those fixtures. Chelsea are the league leaders, and have reached the stage where they could be called champions-elect with a double digit lead at the summit with under a third of the campaign to go. I’m sure Chelsea supporters are still …
It is Time For Marcus Rashford To Emulate and Evolve Under Mourinho

It is Time For Marcus Rashford To Emulate and Evolve Under Mourinho

With the news of Zlatan Ibrahimovic's three-match domestic ban confirmed at the time of writing, and Manchester United, as a consequence, facing the prospect of playing competitive football matches without their talisman and top scorer, there is some suspicion among Reds as to whether Jose Mourinho's side can carry their reasonably strong run of form since early November, on to the coming weeks. The 35-year old, will as a result of the ban, not only miss United's FA Cup outing …
Man United Travel Back in Time to Drop a Further Two Points against Bournemouth

Man United Travel Back in Time to Drop a Further Two Points against Bournemouth

If anything, it was déjà vu for Manchester United at Old Trafford. A score draw when it seemed they could finally permanently climb the league table where they've stayed sixth for the last 138 days and as a result, will continue to do at least until they play their next Premier League game in two weeks' time. It was arguably the weirdest game Manchester United have played under Mourinho so far. Never short of controversies, the game saw a sending off, player …
